Emails

,

Between January and October 2015, I made illuminated versions of my emails, and sent them to people as attachments to the ordinary plain text messages. Here are some examples, with details redacted.

an abstract collage made from diagonal magazine strips. typed text has been horizontally overlaid. most of the text has been digitally erased.

Image description: a black & white pencil drawing of a young, white woman’s face. She has short, dark hair with a big white bow in it. She is wearing circular, dirt-filled sunglasses and vomiting black goop. The goop curves upwards and to the right, moulding itself to the right half of her face. Typed text has been collaged over the goop shape. Most of the text has been digitally erased in order to obscure the recipient and meaning of the message.

an abstract pen & ink drawing comprising close black lines and brown and black blobs with the words "ekstatic creep" drawn in. typed text has been collaged over the drawing, some of it digitally erased. The drawing has been threaded along a copper-coloured rod.

Typed text has been collaged over the drawing, most of it digitally erased in order to obscure the recipient and meaning of the message. The drawing has been threaded at the top along a copper-coloured rod. The rod and drawing have been positioned diagonally on the picture plane.

a b&w pencil drawing of a mountain with a face. the mountain is saying "glog". The words "MOUNTAIN FOLX" are written below the mountain. a message has been pencilled onto the page, but most of it has been digitally erased.

The words “MOUNTAIN FOLX” are written below the mountain. A message has been pencilled onto the page, but most of it has been digitally erased in order to obscure the meaning and recipient.
